Show Notes

Let's dive into episode 7 of "Outgrowing the Good Christian Girl!" Today we're talking with the Rev. Dr. Amy Peeler, an Associate Professor of New Testament at Wheaton College and Associate Rector at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church. Here are the questions we'll be talking about:

1. What did you grow up believing about women's roles in the church and in marriage? (@2:10)
2. How did you come to understand 1 Timothy 2, and how it applies to women today? (@6:30)
3. Can you walk us through 1 Corinthians 14, and help us better understand how this might apply to women today? (@23:44)
4. What is the fruit of silencing women in church? (@30:57)
5. Would you talk with us about 1 Corinthians 11, and how that informs our understanding of women's roles in the church today? (@35:10)
6. Let's talk about marriage and submission. Would you walk us through Ephesians 5? (@44:34)
7. Let's talk about feminism. One of your specialties is feminist theology. What is that, and is it biblical to be a feminist? (@53:43)
8. What resources would you recommend for people who want to study this topic further? (@57:49)

Come back next week as James and I debrief this episode and talk about our personal thoughts on this topic!

XOXO, Tiffany
